Availability: Out of stock
eMax software – tuning for Shimano STEPS E8000
This is one of the most attractive and advanced tuning options for electric bikes with Shimano STEPS E8000 drive systems. It works perfectly with manual and also electronic (Di2) derailleur systems. Unlike other tuning tools, eMax is purely software-based and does not need any physical module or box. Therefore no mechanical installations on the bike are necessary.
Attention: The current eMax software version is not (yet) compatible with the latest firmware version 4.3.4 from Shimano! Whether and when the eMax program will be available again is currently unknown. If you are already an eMax customer, you should not upgrade to the latest Shimano firmware 4.3.4, as this will cause all modifications made with eMax to be cancelled.
A prerequisite for using the eMax software is that you have access to a Windows PC and a Shimano SM-PCE1 interface. The eMax software enables you to set the level for the maximum motor support individually up to 60 km/h for each three support modes (ECO, TRAIL, BOOST). All parameters on the bike display (like speed and distance) will be shown correctly. You can download the eMax software free of charge and check the communication to your bike via PC and PCE1 interface before you order the licence key. If everything runs well, you can order a licence key from us to unlock the tuning functions of the eMax software. Each licence key is limited to one electric bike.
Off course, you can modify your bike many times and also undo the modifications very easy at any time to restore your electric bikes original settings.
Important: To enable the software to communicate with the STEPS E8000 drive unit, you need a PC with Windows operating system (7x, 8x, 10) and a Shimano SM-PCE1 interface.
Attention: The licence key is explicitly assigned to the electric bike! If you want to modify various electric bikes, you need a licence key for each bike.
Additional note to the order: This product can only be ordered separately, as it is mainly shipped free of charge.

Activation / delivery of the licence key:
All functions of the eMax software (except for special tuning functions) can be tested in the cost and licence-free version of the eMax software. Only the licence key is subject to a fee. In order to receive the licence key, you are required to contribute (see above). The generation and dispatch of the licence key after receipt of the electronic serial number usually takes about 1-3 working days.
- Private customers within the EU receive the licence key via e-mail and the invoice via letter.
- Customers with a valid VAT ID in Germany will receive the licence key via e-mail and the invoice via letter.
- For customers with a valid VAT ID within the EU (but outside of Germany) we require a confirmation that you have received the eMax licence key (access confirmation), therefore the delivery of the licence key in these cases is generally only carried out with our standard postal package (invoice enclosed). The package will be handed over after confirmation of receipt by signature.
- If you purchase the licence key outside the EU, it will also be sent to you with our standard postal package (not via e-mail). This is mainly due to customs reasons. Delivery may therefore take longer. We ask you to take this into account when placing your order and ask for your understanding of this process flow. The package will be handed over after confirmation of receipt by signature.
Customers from the United States of America (USA) and Canada cannot be supplied. Thank you for your understanding.
